the Beutel family

With Thanksgiving break coming up…we are heading out of town, thus no photo editing will be going on.  This week I have been working night and day to finish up a few more sessions prior to our trip.  One of those sessions was for this family…img_4355We share a special bond with them as families because our sons both have the same rare neuro-immunological condition, Transverse Myelitis (TM). (you can find more info on that here…TMA)  We met years ago when our boys played wheelchair basketball on the same team and have kept in touch, sharing information along the way.  We also enjoy spending time together each year at TMA Family Camp at this amazing place (CCK).  I was thrilled when they reached out to me to capture fall family photos for them!img_4333As anyone who has a dealt with a chronic illness knows….it’s not easy.  It puts a strain on the family that is difficult to explain to someone who has never faced it. This is especially true when the sick person is your child.  They say that facing things like that will either tear you apart or draw you closer together…and if you spend any time with this family you will see that their bond is super strong, loving, and as close as any family could be!img_4138I had so much fun photographing these guys.  They are super silly siblings!  Equal parts of loving and wanting to poke each other every second.  Perfect!!img_4425img_4431img_4443Our day was beautiful…the fall colors were in full swing…and we took our time moving around to get the best shots.  img_4183img_4511img_4823Sometimes it takes a while for kids to loosen up and just be themselves.  I always book extra time with kids to give them time to relax into the session.  I find that when you do that you get photos like this…img_4720And this…img_4699And especially this…img_4806img_4811I hope you guys had as much fun as I did that day!  And…thank you for choosing me to capture these sweet memories for your family!
